Recreational Program Guide

BEGINNING Recreational Classes & Camps

You learn safety first and the rules of the range, and basic form starting with natural shooting technique, how to keep score. We do lots of fun archery games and mini tournaments for all levels. Students are divided in shooting lanes by ages, level, and distance abilities. All equipment is supplied, and all of our coaches are US Archery certified professionals. Classes meet once weekly, and camps are half-day week long sessions which can be combined with fencing camp to make all day camps!

After your beginning class graduation, if you want to continue with archery in the novice-intermediate level you would become a Cal Sports Club member. 

NOVICE-INTERMEDIATE Recreational Classes & Camps

This is the level after the beginning course. We start to teach more of the Olympic Style and technique at this time, and you also get to start using a variety of bows such as the recurve, genesis, and compound bow. We also start moving the targets to different distances for different levels. Archery classes are pretty easy to teach with both novice and intermediate archers as level is based on distance ability with increased technique, mechanics, and focus. Our US Archery Certified Head Coach (he has many other distinctions) actually teaches these recreational levels along with US Archery Certified Assistants Coaches and apprentices.

The Novice-intermediate recreational program is an ongoing program that runs throughout the year. You can attend once or twice weekly. All equipment rental fees are still included in the annual fee. 

INTERMEDIATE-ADVANCED Recreational Classes & Camps

These classes take you to an awesome level of shooting with deeper concentration in technique and mechanics, while also practicing many different types of competition formats while using a variety of target faces. These classes lead to our JOAD –US Junior Olympic Archery development program and teams.

There is no additional annual fee or level up fees!  It takes two days weekly to prepare for JOAD.
